Miami has become more than just a vacation spot for Bezos and Sanchez; it's now their new home base. The billionaire, with a net worth of $169.7 billion according to Forbes, has invested in two adjacent properties on the exclusive Indian Creek island in Miami-Dade County.

The staggering price tag of $147 million for the properties signals their commitment to creating a luxurious haven in their newfound residence.

Their decision to relocate from Seattle to Miami was met with great anticipation, revealed in early November. News of their engagement had already piqued public interest five months prior, making the couple the subject of many conversations and speculations.

Sanchez recently expressed her excitement about becoming 'Mrs. Bezos' once they tie the knot, giving a glimpse into their future plans.

Adding to the excitement, Sanchez's son Nikko joined them at Art Basel Miami Beach, further solidifying their bond as a family.
